I'm so grateful you found your way to me. I'm Lisa, a Mama of two, wife to a sailor, qualified social worker and certified doula. I am passionate about the transition to motherhood and would be so honoured to work with you at such an incredibly transformative time in your life. I use my skills as a social worker and doula to support you in your desired birth and postpartum. Each doula has her own style and whilst I may have a sprinkling of 'woo woo' with a splash of essential oils, I am very much an empath and critical thinker who values evidence based information, kindness, love and a pragmatic approach to supporting each woman in her own unique journey. To find out more about the role of a doula, please feel free to read some of my blogs posts www.lisastephensondoula.com
I have experienced two empowering hospital calm births; both entirely different from each other. I don't have preconceived ideas about how your birth should unfold. I support all births; home or hospital, medicated or unmedicated, vaginal or caesarean section and anything in between. I am of the opinion that we are all unique individuals who approach our desired birth with a story. My aim is to unpack that story and release any fear so that you can approach your transition to motherhood from a place of love.
I am respectful of your choices and want you to have all the information and tools you need to achieve your desired birth, however that may look for you. So if you feel we may be a good fit, please reach out for an obligation free chat. I would be honoured to support you.
